Red and green plaid Christmas Tree

Welcome to my 2018 Christmas Home Tour! Decorating for the holidays is my favourite thing, so of course sharing this post is one of my favourites too! Not only because I get to share what I love most about Christmas, but also get to link up with a bunch of other Canadian decor bloggers who […]

Glam Farmhouse kitchen reveal with Dekton countertop and Jeffery Court Tile

Weeeeoooh, what a whirlwind 6 weeks. It feels so good to be at the finish line! I can’t say it wasn’t a gruelling 6 week Kitchen Renovation Challenge, but so rewarding in the end! I am insanely excited to show you the final reveal of my fresh modern farmhouse kitchen. Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Reveal I […]

Things got real this week, demo week is here! After a hours of hard planning, said ‘plans’ got completely turned upside down and started to snowball. I had plans to move a thing here and put a thing there, until it grew, and it grew, and it grew. I mean that’s the thing about renovations […]

I have some exciting news! Well, a few tidbits of exciting news… 1. I’m moving! 2. I’m doing a full on kitchen renovation in the Yellow House 3. I partnered with Jeffery Court for an exciting 6 Week Renovation Challenge.  6 weeks seems like a mad push, but I work best under pressure, and it […]

Fall Home Tour 2018

September 12th, 2018 | Home Decor

How did fall sneak up on us so fast? It seemed as if one day was blistering hot and the kids were swimming, and the next I hauled out my slippers and wool blankets. I’m so grateful to be a part of this years Canadian Bloggers Fall Home Tour. Fixing up my home for fall […]

Bathroom makeup vanity

Ever spot a room that is just all kinds of wrong? Well, let me introduce the blue bathroom. It was a 9.5 on the bad scale for me, like wrong on so many levels. With just a few hours to spare I gave this bright blue space a much needed bathroom makeover… with a little spa like […]

Farmhouse kitchen makeover before and after

If you follow along with my insta stories, you would have seen I was helping to spruce up my BF house over the winter to be put on the market. Work is complete, house is up for sale, and fresh decor is just waiting for the right family to come along. This modern farmhouse is a beautiful […]

Vintage Inspired Christmas Vignette

One of my favourite Christmas decorating jobs (besides the tree of course- see past trees, here, here, and here) is my Christmas Vignette. I always wish I had a mantle to spiff up, but I compensate with a kitchen hutch… or shelves in the case this year (see my 2015 and 2016 Christmas kitchen hutch). This Vintage […]

Crisp modern kitchen with a bright pop of yellow

Of all the rooms in my home I think the kitchen has underwent the most decor changes. It may be because there is only 2.5 small walls to change, so really I can give it a completely different look in just an afternoon. I actually did this kitchen decor update in the spring, but put […]

Leons Hello Sunshine Magazine

It’s here, its finally here! If you’ve been watching on social media, you likely already know that I’ve teamed up with Leon’s for the 2017 edition of the Leon’s Furniture Hello Sunshine magazine. The magazine is published in hard copy and an online version which you can see by clicking here.   If you live in Ontario […]

Vintage Locker Console Table

I’ve been on a mad redecorating binge. One of those you start with a tiny space and it spills over into an entire level of your house. One little furniture project led to another, which led to painting a wall, which led to a new rug… if you give a mouse a cookie situation.  This Vintage […]

Wayfarers Ale Society, Nova Scotia

A few months back I was given the opportunity to decorate the newly opened Wayfarers Ale Society in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. The owners of this newly built craft brewery had an amazing vision for the esthetics on the outside of the building, but the taproom was a blank slate. I was more than happy to […]

Making Spirts Bright FREE printable

Each year I like to switch up my holiday decor, and since this is the first year of owning a restaurant and lounge, I thought adding a Holiday Bar Cart into the mix would be the perfect addition. When I saw everything Shutterfly had to offer in this year I couldn’t resist adding pieces from their […]

Mini Patio Makeover

June 11th, 2016 | Home Decor

Whew, how did it get to be mid June already?! We’re just starting to warm up here in Nova Scotia. They blackflies and mosquitoes have dissipated (just in time for the June bugs to arrive) and we can finally start to enjoy some outdoor living. Two years ago my brother (aka Captain Carpentry) helped add a back deck […]
